Chiropractic Information

What is chiropractic care?

Doctors of Chiropractic have the skill, experience, knowledge, and
training to care for joint related pain and disease. Doctors of
Chiropractic have the practical experience to care for
subluxated/misaligned joints.


What is a subluxation?

A subluxation is defined as "an incomplete forward or lateral
dislocation of one vertebra upon the one below or the one above,
trauma sufficient to result in tearing or rupture of the supporting
ligaments allow one vertebrae to drift away from the other" W.B
Saunders 1987. Suluxations may also be caused by trauma, psychological
stress, tension over time, and toxins over time. When a subluxation
is present, the nervous system will not function correctly and the
body will not be able to heal itself.

What causes pain?

When a spinal vertebrae subluxates the nerve is impinged and the joint does not function normally inflammation and swelling result. The inflammation and swelling can irritate nerves and cause pain. Muscles that attach to the bones of the subluxated joint may become taut or spasm and cause pain. Subluxations can also be found in other joints of the body such as shoulders, elbows, hands, feet, knees, and hips. It is the job of the Doctor of Chiropractic to identify and adjust these joints back into a normal position so the nerve system can function normally and your body can heal. The pain can be alleviated and the joint can heal.


What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

After identifying how a specific joint has subluxated a Doctor of Chiropractic using their hands or instruments lightly adjusts or pushes the bone back into a normal position. This is called a Chiropractic adjustment. After an adjustment most patients notice some relief immediately.
